CF to Host Bay Baroque Ensemble at Appleton Museum
Sept. 13, 2013
The College of Central Florida will host a recital by the Bay Baroque Ensemble, the leading Baroque ensemble in the Tampa Bay area. The event will feature music by some of the finest Baroque composers from the late 17th to mid-18th centuries, including Tomaso Albinoni, George Philipp Telemann, Georg Friedrich Händel, and Christoph Graupner.
The recital will be held at noon Friday, Sept. 27, at the Appleton Museum of Art, College of Central Florida, 4333 E. Silver Springs Blvd., Ocala. The performance is included in the price of museum admission and is free for museum members. Daily admission is $6 for adults; $4 for seniors 55 or better and students 19 and over; $3 for youths ages 10-18; and free for members, CF students, children age 9 and under, and active military personnel and their immediate families. Please use the Rotunda Entrance during the Appleton’s lobby renovation project.
The Bay Baroque Ensemble, which is the only group in the Tampa Bay area to consistently play on replicas of historical instruments at one of the most common Baroque pitches, performs on replicas of the early 18th-century two-keyed oboe, the recorder, viola da gamba, and an Italian-style harpsichord.
“The varied program includes one of Albinoni’s finest concertos for oboe, strings and continuo, a Telemann trio sonata for recorder, viola da gamba and continuo, a Handel sonata for recorder, violin and continuo, and one of Christoph Graupner’s finest sacred cantatas, ‘Ach Gott und Herr’ for soprano, oboe, strings and continuo,” said Dr. Sarah Satterfield, CF professor of Music.
Members of the group include its organizer, John Robison, a long-time professor at University of South Florida who will be featured on Baroque oboe and recorder; Maggie Coleman, soprano; Patrick Baran and Terry Rejko, violins; Kathie Aagaard, viola; Theresa Villani, viola da gamba; and Anne Marie Scotto, harpsichord.
